I know this sounds bizarre, but it really is good! This is a recipe that came from a family with eleven kids. It used to be a budget stretcher for them, back in the days when Spam was cheap! This is also very quick and easy to prepare.

It might sound strange, but this was excellent. The "jar" sauce was much sweeter than I am used to for a sauce. I was in a hurry this time I made it, next time I will make my own sauce. My son loves spam, it is HIS comfort food. I am not crazy about spam, but it tasted pretty good to me too. Yes, I will make this again.
